Ring Leader

Think Jesse Ventura and your mental image may very well be the emotionally traumatic sight of his jiggling crotch bulge, clad in purple iridescent fabric. Still, though ’80s wrestling spandex may have propelled the man’s career, he’s due some credit for his stints as a Navy SEAL and the former governor of Minnesota and for having a role in one of our finest pieces of cinema, Predator. Now he has a new book, Don’t Start the Revolution Without Me!, in which he lends his pen to the topic of contemporary American politics.
